Fans have been demanding an Assassin's Creed game set in Asia for a long time.

But after the leaked announcement of Assassin's Creed Victory, it looks like we won't be getting one until at least 2016. Ubisoft, however, has not ruled out the possibility of a game set in the region.

In a recent press event, Ubisoft's Stephanie Perotti was quoted saying, "I don't think that we said we weren't interested in Chinese history.

I think that we notice a lot of stories--we want to have creativity to create the right story."

Perotti also stated that Ubisoft would want the titles to be about the region's history.

A Chinese branch of the Assassin order was established with the release of Assassin's Creed: Embers. The movie chronicled the end of Ezio Auditore's life. During his latter days, he trained a Chinese assassin named Shao Jun.

In addition, Shao Jun was given her spin-off DLC with Assassin's Creed Chronicles: China. The game, however, is a small side-scrolling DLC. It doesn't satisfy fan demand for a full Assassin's Creed title set in Asia.

China and Japan were both listed as a "possible settings" in an e-mail during the present-day storyline in Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag.

Ubisoft has a history of hinting at future settings for Assassin's Creed games: Clues for setting of Assassin's Creed Unity were set in the Freedom Cry DLC.
